A huge thanks to Chris and Julie Bullen for sharing some fantastic Last Gasping with Gatsby from up in Canada..Maybe we change the Last Gasping to Last Gatsbying?
Hello from Canada. We have surely missed all our friends south of the border, not being able to take the boat and go boating with everyone has been a bit of a bummer. Looks like we may be able to go south in November. Boating with our friends in the USA will have to wait.
As they say, you sure miss something more when it’s gone. We will be happy to see everyone in the new year when boating in the northern hemisphere returns. This brings me to “Last Gasping”, we have pushed it a bit longer this year, the warm fall has kept us boating, we have not wanted to put them away. Sunset cruises continued until Sunday night. It is still fall, despite some warm temps the rain has been normal, so getting the last sunset cruise was a bit hit and miss. The clouds seem to come in about a half-hour before sunset.
Taking photos this time of year as you know is wonderful. The low sun, the colour on the shoreline just make for some special photos. It’s a fleeting time, and getting a good day, good foliage, and time to just go boating makes it all that more special when it works out. Julie was looking good in her 1940 WJ Johnson, boating with the beautiful colours of the fall.
We had put Gatsby to bed a week ago, last night we took Riot out to find a sunset. We found both a sunset and a rainbow, what a way to end the season.
Wishing you all a good winter and happy boating.
Cheers Julie and Chris
